Planting and Care

 

Planting your Poprocks™ Petite Potentilla is easy:

Dig a hole twice the width of the pot, and deep enough so that when you place the plant in the hole, the top of the root ball is level with the ground around the hole. Fill in the space around the plant with a planting soil mix (you can buy this where you buy the plant) and press the area down with your foot.

Give the plant a good watering to help it settle in.

Relax!

 

 

Your plant will do well with additional water when it’s hot. But to see its fuller potential, follow these steps!

Mulch

An easy way to keep weeds down around your plant, and to keep it moist with less watering is to throw a 2 inch layer of mulch around the base of the plant – basic bagged “landscape mulch” from your local garden centre will do the trick.

Fertilize

Your Poprocks™ Petite won’t need a lot of fertilizer, but it will benefit from a shot of good all purpose fertilizer in the spring when the leaves start to sprout. A fertilizer with a higher middle number (e.g. 15-30-15 or 5-10-5) will work best.

Prune

Prune into low mounding shape in early spring for great form and flower performance.
